Dining at House of Lechon Cebu

Friday, September 15, 2017
Cebu City is known for its five-star resorts, historical sites, beautiful churches and of course, the best tasting lechon (suckling pig) in the Philippines. There is a wide selection of stores that offer their own take on Cebu's traditional lechon and if you're visiting Cebu, you might want to try them all.
Last weekend, I invited my high school friends to lunch. We intentionally wanted to eat someplace else but since they weren't open at the time, we opted to eat somewhere nearer.
We ate at House of Lechon, located very near Ayala Center Cebu. Although the place is very accessible, it can be hard to find since it is not located in a major road.

The place looks very nice.  Pleasant, clean, spacious and really comfortable. The interior design is high-end and trendy, but still with a Filipino touch though. I liked the entire feel of the restaurant.
We ordered 1 kilo of their Carcar Regular Lechon, 1 serving of Monggos, Grilled Tuna Belly, 3 rice platters and 1 pitcher of iced tea. We paid around P1500.00 for a meal that's good for seven (7) people, but rest assured our stomachs were close to exploding after eating.

Their lechon is fantastic. It might even be the best I've tasted so far. I liked it better than Zubuchon and CnT, both popular choices for lechon in Cebu. Although the skin is not as crispy as that in Zubuchon. I loved how they served it with 'tanglad' on the side. Tanglad is what truly makes lechon taste wonderful. Their rice platter is also served in a traditional Filipino rice pot which I think is a creative idea to serve rice. Monggos was really tasty as well. They also have a wide choice of Filipino dishes other than lechon. Their entire menu is shown below.

Overall, I enjoyed my dining experience at House of Lechon. The food was tasty and filling. The place is terrific. They also have friendly and helpful staff members. Price is affordable. At the end of the meal, we were all satisfied with the service we received. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for anyone wanting to have their lechon fix.

To end this post, here's a selfie of me and my friends with heavy stomachs.

  1. I think that I may be becoming a seagan...the idea of eating certain foods any more sends my inner child into the corner to cry. But anyhow this thought process has absolutely nothing to do with you, and I am sincerely glad that you had a pleasant meal with your classmates. The restaurant is absolutely gorgeous.

  2. Looks so good. I'm glad you had a great meal and a great time with your classmates. Cebu. I always hear about it and everyone goes to it, so I'm wondering if I need to visit that place one day.
